Window into another world....






Windows into another world, 25 miles east of Santa Fe, at the 1600s ruin of the Spanish mission at Pecos Pueblo.
And in the foreground, the door to another world, the sacred Kiva of the Pecos Pueblo tribe


Artist idea of what the church looked like in the Spanish 1700, 25 miles east of Santa Fe. This window  above is at far right near rear of church.

Drawing from the opposite angle of the mission, looking southwest, rear of the church in the foreground.
